Stricter Twitter Rules. Introducing Tweepi’s new Quick Actions.

Update [16th September 2013]: Twitter did not agree that Quick Actions complies with their latest rules. As a result we are retiring ‘Quick Actions’ and making the best out of this situation by introducing the ‘Default Button’ toggle that emphasizes the main action you’d like to perform.

Please feel free to contact us for help using the latest version of Tweepi.

 

Due to the latest Twitter updates to their “Automation Rules and Best Practices“, we are forced to disable multiple selections. As a result, you’ll notice that the checkboxes have been removed and you can now just select one user at a time.

To keep Tweepi the fastest way to manage your Twitter account, we are introducing Quick Actions. Once the toggle button is clicked, you may click anywhere on a row to Follow/Unfollow or Force Unfollow a user.

Use your keyboard…

The great news is that by being cornered into this change, Tweepi got even better! Try this:

  • Enable a Quick Action
  • Click a row (that’ll activate the Quick Action selected)
  • Then start navigating with the “Up” and “Down” keyboard arrows. Hitting the “Spacebar” will select this row and activate the action.

We are confident that this change will enhance your Tweepi experience, and make it faster to make follow/unfollow choices through our interface.

As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback about Tweepi’s Quick Actions.

Tweepi’s New “Force User to Unfollow You” Feature

Our latest Tweepi Premium feature is the “Force to Unfollow you” feature.

In a nutshell, you have Twitter friends (people you follow) and followers (people following you). The “Unfollow” feature unfollows users you are currently following. The “Force Unfollow” feature forces a user who is currently following you to unfollow you.

Why do I need it?

This feature was requested on several occasions by users who have undesirable people following them with bad profile images or just all with the default “egg” photos, and they wish to force these users to unfollow them to maintain their brand’s image at a certain standard.

How do I access the “Force Unfollow” tools?

Tweepi Premium Silver and Platinum users can access these tools from their dashboards.

You can simply see a list of all the users following you:

Force Unfollow: Show a list of all followers

Force Unfollow: Show a list of all followers

or use the more specific tools under the “Force Unfollow Tools” section:

Tweepi’s new Queued following feature makes things 10X faster!

We are excited to announce our latest feature: Queued following and unfollowing. This feature was added to minimize the time you need to do all follow/unfollow tasks through Tweepi. It was designed to be a great time saver!

What is it?

When you select users and click follow/unfollow, you will see that the status next to those users will change to “Queued for un/following”. This indicates that our servers will process it regardless on which page you are, within a minute or two. This feature was added so that you can select a large number of users for following, from each page, navigate back and forth to different pages without waiting at all. All following/unfollowing will be done in the background.

Queue for following / unfollowing

How do I know the status of those actions?

You will get a blue bubble at the bottom-right corner of your browser once each action goes through. The “Last action” in yellow will also be updated.

Try it out. It’s available for both Tweepi Free (for the moment) and Tweepi Premium accounts.

10 Valuable Tips for NGOs on Twitter

NGOs & Causes

NGOs & Causes

Twitter is fundamentally changing the way people, companies and organizations interact and share ideas. With that said, and especially in the case of NGOs, it is very important to learn how to utilize Twitter in order to achieve the goals and objectives they are trying to promote.

Therefore, for today’s post, I will be sharing with you 10 useful and equally valuable tips for NGOs on Twitter:

1. Monitor Discussions & Relevant Updates:

Once you’ve signed up and chosen the right Twitter name, avatar and background for your NGO, start out by doing a search. This will familiarize you with the relevant content on Twitter and will give you a taste on how to proceed further.

2. Identify & Follow:

Identify the most influential and interesting Twitter users in your sector and follow them. You can also look up your friends and colleagues since they might help you get more exposure for the cause you are promoting. Tweepi.com is a great tool for doing that!

3. Customize Your Account:

Add a descriptive bio, a related link and customize your page to encourage tweeps to follow you. There’s just enough room for a short description in your Twitter bio so use it; explain what you’re doing or, if you’re representing an organization or campaign, and describe your activities.

4. Create a Relevant Voice:

Perhaps you want to inspire debate by asking pertinent, open-ended questions or maybe you want to inform about issues. It’s up to you which tone of voice you use but avoid going into rants or being idle.

5. Patience, Grasshopper:

There are many services out there that promise huge number of followers, forget about them; what you really want is quality not quantity. Having 50,000 people who aren’t listening to you or retweeting you is not as valuable as 100 advocates who will evangelize your cause.

The way to do this right is by being active through posting relevant and interesting messages and responding and engaging with followers. Continue reading »

Twitter for Business

an Excellent Resource

The Twitter for business section of the service is invaluable for anybody who wants to utilize Twitter for their business. This section has an introduction to the service and its basics, some case studies and explanation of the methods of advertising that are available on Twitter. It will help you understand promoted trends, tweets and accounts and also it will explain the analytics that are available to advertisers on Twitter.

Who To Follow & Browse by Interest

These two features have been there for a while; when you log-on to your account on the Twitter website, you’ll be able to see it at the top of the page. These two features are invaluable to finding new people to follow. The first feature – Who to Follow – will suggest people for you to follow based on the people that you are already following and certain other criteria. As for the “Browse by Interest” feature, it will allow you to browse recommendations that are split into 18 different categories. So if you feel that your Twitter feed is a bit bare, be sure to check those two features out. Continue reading »
